    Hi Mel_PL,

    I'm sorry, I didn't mean to ignore you. I didn't see your post. The truth is I don't know. You might review Goldserve's threads , but I don't think a heck of a lot of folks have tried this, although I've discussed it with Kevin and have some experiments lined up myself.

    Default Sales and interest thread for Tri-Flupic, Fenix, Arc-Q3, Jil, and Pigl

    Ok I finally have some Tri-Flupics and Piglets. I didn't get enough for myself, but I will fulfill my obligation in this thread to all posts that came in before this one. If you want to post interest in another run, then please do post. I've copied this post to the beginning of the thread for easy access.

    Piglet
    I have a handful of 0.55" sammie sized piglet buck/boost boards with more coming. These are the original custom sammie sized buck/boost multi level boards for Li-ion and CR123 (3v-3.6v). These fit TnC Canisters, Aleph LE, etc. The ones I have now are 50/500mA with the simplified UI listed below. These will run under full regulation for both CR123s and Li-ions. Also I have 150/800mA boards coming that will run in full regulation for Li-ions, but are not suited for CR123s to reach the full 800mA under regulation, but they still work.

    Piglets:
    // UI 1 - LOW - HIGH - LOW - HIGH - LOW - HIGH - OFF - SET_UI
    #rom 0x2110 = {0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 6, 7}
    // UI 2 - HIGH - LOW - HIGH - LOW - HIGH - LOW - OFF - SET_UI
    #rom 0x2120 = {1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 6, 7}
    // UI 3 - (LOW) - (HIGH) - STROBE - BEACON - OFF - OFF - SET_UI
    #rom 0x2130 = {0, 1, 3, 9, 6, 6, 7, 0}
    // UI 3 - (LOW) - (HIGH) - STROBE - BEACON - OFF - OFF - SET_UI
    #rom 0x2138 = {1, 0, 3, 9, 6, 6, 7, 0}
    // UI 4 - LOW - HIGH - STROBE - BEACON - OFF - SET_UI
    #rom 0x2140 = {0, 1, 3, 9, 6, 7, 0, 0}
    // UI 5 - STROBE - HIGH - LOW - SOS - OFF - SET_STROBE - SET_UI
    #rom 0x2150 = {3, 1, 0, 4, 6, 8, 7, 0}

    Tri-Flupic
    Almost all the Tri-Flupics are the standard UI, but I may have some simplified custom versions. I have a few with the GregW interface from the Exollion and some Bogus1 programmed boards as well. My boards start on high, as that is how Chris and I run our lights. When you need bright light, you need it now. You can always set the light to low at your leisure. I know, I know, some guys just use their lights differently and thus the standard UI or perhaps the GregW UI.

    Bogus1 program:
    User Mode 1: burst> level 1> tactical strobe> Level 2> 3 second beacon>15 second beacon>SOS> set mode

    User Mode 2: set level > set strobe >set mode, 800ms

    The second interface goes back to the first. This makes it simpler and keeps me from getting lost This means that when in mode 2, after the 800ms lapses, if you turn the light off and then on again it will start on burst (high). It jumps from Mode 2 to Mode 1. In effect this means there is really only one user mode and one level setting mode. Beacon brightness is set by Level 2.

    I'm selling the Piglets for $30 and the Tri-Flupics for $35 each. Shipping is $3 for USPS delivery confirmation and $6 for priority. My cash paypal (only) is Catsndog AT Inreach Dot Com
    Please post your CPF name and what you are ordering and it will help to post in this thread for me to track cash orders. I won't begin shipment until Friday or Saturday.

    If you are using a Credit Card for payment, I will post the Flupics on our TnC Online Store, specifically at LEDs, Drivers & Supplies either Friday or Saturday. I won't begin shipping until Friday or Saturday.
    If you order online, please include your CPF name in the notes. The rest is automatic. Please only order if you are on the list.

    I also have at the store:
    Flupic converter version 2.2 Standard Sammie 0.55"
    Flupic converter version 2.2 Standard Sammie 0.55" 1amp burst
    Flupic converter version 2.2 Standard UI 0.6" for Fenix

    [Sales Spiel mode on] I want to point out a few advantages of the Flupics as I see them. Some claim the program is complicated. There are custom simple Flupic programs, and the UI was developed under extensive CPF user input.

    When I take a look at what lights many seem to be buying, they have imported lights each with its own complicated different program. When I look at sig lines I wonder how someone works all those different UIs. With the Flupic, you have the option of using ALL your LED lights with the exact same program because of the various Flupic sizes available. That makes it worth investing the time to learn a program and then a real benefit can be reaped. Otherwise it's like having your pants down, or worse, if you can't work your light. You could have a Jillite Flupic, a Fenix Flupic, and an Icarus or Mac Custom with a Tri-Flupic. All your lights could work the same. Or you could have from a TnC N cell; all the way to a C size Li-ion with multi emitters (coming) and all your lights could behave the same. This is a unique advantage the Flupic offers. It's worth a thought IMO. This is how I use my lights.

    Another advantage of the Tri-Flupic from my view, is that the LEDs aren't in series so if one LED goes out, they don't all die. Also the Vf of the LED isn't critical like running LEDs in parallel since they are driven independently. Of course it is nice to run 3x LEDs off a single Li-ion, rather than require higher voltage. I believe there are other advantages, but I haven't fully explored them yet. [Spiel off]

    Eric - Tri-Flupics . Great news! This is what I have been waiting for. PP later today for the items I listed early in the thread (have not gone back to re-read, but I believe I asked for 1x tri-flu, and 1 x flupic). If you have another Tri- or Piglet available let me know and I will take one. Thanks again for putting this sale together. Kirk

    Mel, I put a few Tri-Flupics and Piglets on the store. I will restock the Tri-Flupics when I sell out from buyers on the list. I just didn't want someone coming and taking them all. Thanks

    I tried to make a cash paypal payment to you, but Paypal will only allow credit card or echeck payments to you for some reason.

    I want to buy 3 tri-flupics.

    Hi Kirk,

    I'm sorry, I don't know why I keep missing posts.

    I do have an extra piglet for you and I do see (1) Tri-Flupic and a Flupic (no limit) on your list.

    I feel bad guys not selling more than on the list. I should have ordered more but it just didn't seem there was as much demand as there turned out to be. If you guys post interest for more I will try to get more made soon. It might just be we can't build our heads for these before a possible next shipment arrives anyhow, so if that's the case I'll cut loose with more from my own reserves. So if you post interest for additional boads past this post we can make a new list. Does that sound fair?

    Hi Andy, E check is fine if that works for you. Can you please limit your order to (1) board however for the time being? Please see my post above or below to Kirk (depending on how you read the threads). It could be as early as next week or the week after when I will know when (whether) I might be able to get more built. Thanks

    Eric, I see that there are Tri-Flupic 0.55" boards for sale in your shop.
    I suppose this is a typo? If not I definitely need one (to read I'll take one)!

    Eric - You have been MORE than fair with these boards . I don't want to be a "hog" but if you have an extra piglet I will take it. If the supply is limited, or if someone else needs one right away, I can wait until the next round.

    Hi Kirk,

    Kevin filled my full order of Tri-Flupic boards and that apparently wasn't enough, but he only partially filled my Piglet order so more of those are coming. I have plenty now for everyone who posted they want one with more on the way so it's fine to order now, in fact it's better for both of us. Less postage for you and less mailing for me I'll ship in about three hours, so if you could let me know.

    Hi Icarus,

    Thanks for pointing out the typo. I fixed it Although you can drive three LEDs in parallel with the o.55" Flupic, you would have to match the Vf and divide the current among the three.

    Well I'm glad to see this is moving really well.
    I lost count but I think Walt is in for like 12 or 16 TriFluPics.. lmao..
    Sorry Walt it's just I think I could hear you chanting, Tri, Tri, TriFlupic..

    I was in for:
    X Marine - Tri Flupic (2x), Flupic (2x), Piglets (2x) Arc-Q3 (2x), Jil (2x)

    But I already visited the store a while back and grabbed 4xFp .55" & 2xFp .55" 1amp, & 2Fp .6" Fenix.

    But now I would like 2x Tri FluPic, 2x Piglets, and I did need 2 of the 10.5mm boards but no rush on that 2, BUT I am in real need now for 1more 10.5mm for this sweet little TNC N-cell I snagged so I can run it on my 10280's I use with my Draco, and let it flame on..

    So if I can get 1 ea. you can put the other 4 on BO and I'll even prepay if your sure they coming..

    So let me know if you can let loose of one for now, prices, and I'll shoot you a cash PP..

    Again many thanks for stiring this all up and sponsoring as well.
    And Kudos for GMoney fer hanging like a champ with the updates..

    Hi Kirk, Scott, and Andy. I know I laid down the law and said no more boards could be purchased than what was posted on the list, but I did go ahead and ship you the extra Tri-Flupics you requested. Kirk I sent you (1) extra, Scott (1) extra, and Andy (2) extra. I know I should have asked first but it seemed easy at the time, so if you can paypal for those I would be pleased. I just didn't want you guys to have to keep looking out for this thread in the future.

    Sancho886 you are welcome to order as well.

    X-Marine,

    You are up for (2) Tri-Flupics and (2) Piglets. Unfortunately I can't spare the 10.5mm boards at this time due to our new TnC Micro-Flex N cell project. I only received (20) 10.5mm boards in my last shipment and none in this one. I do have a DD pill using a Luxeon that would work for you in a single stage light on the N cell li-ion. I could sell this to you cheap or loan it to you until I can get you setup. I have a couple new completed flupic pills that would drop in, but I might want these for my own N cells. I feel bad about this so please let me know if there's something I can do.

    Bogus1 - I'm ready to send payment for a tri-flupic, I just want to know if there is extra for shipping to Canada. Let me know and I'll send the paypal.

    I originally posted an interest in a piglet but in the end I think a different converter would be better in the intended application so I hope it won't be a problem if I pass on the piglet.

    I need one 50/500mA piglet, and I need at list one 150/800mA as well.
    for 50/500 piglet + $3 shipping.
    And then 150/800 boards will be available?
    Thanks
    Forget to mention, I will pass on tri-flupic this time.

    Hi PhotonAddict,

    If you want to ship priority I think that's about $10 and I could get that out tomorrow. Otherwise for $4 I can ship first class, but it will have to wait until Tuesday as I have to stand in line at the PO for first class and there is no such service here Saturday and (Monday is a US postal holiday).

    Hi Russki,

    I think it will be probably a couple weeks. The parts are here, it's just a matter of Kevin putting them together. He should be getting to that within the next week.

    Hi X-Marine,

    The four boards would run $130 total plus either $3 or $6 depending on your haste

    I'm hoping to be playing with Micro-Flex N cell prototypes next week and if all goes well then in February we could have the aluminum lights and perhaps even Ti lights ready. I'm so busy right now and Icarus does such great work he might assemble the canisters (threaded pills). Incidently before there was a Draco he was bulding these N cell 10.5mm pills for me as a mod to the original TnC N cell. Others have used his service since for this and they can attest to his skill. The only hang up there is shipping to an fro
